[smd] Expected Amendments to SMD CAN and AO due dates

[smd] Expected Amendments to SMD CAN and AO due dates

Given
the continuing Government shutdown, we expect to release amendments
announcing the delay of proposal due dates next week (week of October
14, 2013).

If the Government is still shutdown at the time these
amendments are released, the due date will be set to “TBD”.

NSPIRES
cannot support a “TBD” date, thus the date within the system will
arbitrarily be set to 03/31/14 – to be consistent with ROSES “TBD” date
changes. The solicitations will be amended again when the Government
returns to work to provide the new due date.

Programs under consideration for amendment next week are as follows:

NNH13ZDA017C
NASA Astrobiology Institute Cooperative Agreement (NAI CAN) Cycle 7: 
Step-1 proposals currently due November 4, 2013.

NNH12ZDA006O-EVI2 Earth Venture Instrument – 2 Announcement of Opportunity (AO): Proposals currently due November 7, 2013.

NNH13ZDA018O Mars 2020 Investigations Announcement of Opportunity (AO): Proposals currently due December 23, 2013.

Decisions
on amending ROSES NOI and proposal due dates that are currently set to
the end of October and early November will be made at a later date.

During
the shutdown NASA personnel will not be available to answer questions,
but the NSPIRES help line will be open.

When the Government resumes
business, questions should be directed to the Points of Contact for each
solicitation. Those Points of Contact will be provided in the
amendments expected to be released next week.
